Offer free bikes to residential students who agree to leave their cars at home. Ensure that there are sufficient numbers of bike racks on campus. Institute bike and car share programs. Offer students and staff discounted or free transit passes for public transportation. Consider telecommuting, flexible schedules, and virtual meetings as options to reduce pressures on parking spaces and traffic congestion. Save money, improve your health, and be part of the solution to air pollution by taking advantage of public transportation.
